Flames coach Glen Gulutzan, who is in his first season as Calgary's bench boss, got to see a different side of Johnny Gaudreau on Sunday.

"When Johnny first came here after he signed his contract, it was a different Johnny than the Johnny (on Sunday)," Gulutzan said. "Johnny (Sunday) was really excited. I talked to him before the game, right before the game, and he was really excited. There were two different Johnnys. I think sitting back, watching, getting excited and re-centred … boy, he brought a lot of good energy when he came into the room (Sunday). But I think that’s a credit to him." Gaudreau struggled after inking his six-year, $40.5 million contract and then was forced to miss two and a half weeks with a finger injury. The silver lining with that injury though is that it was an opportunity for Gaudreau to take a step back and regroup. He came back on Sunday and scored a goal and an assist in his return.

Shinkaruk has an assist in seven games with the Calgary Flames this season. He was only averaging 10:35 minutes in the NHL, so heading to AHL Stockton will give the 22-year-old a chance to play significantly more.
